Ed. Note: Please note the quotes around “And His Guitar”
There are some who have questioned my love for the late great John Denver and all I can say is make no mistake. But then it got me thinking that it might be fun to see everyone else’s favorite posters since we’re mostly stuck inside for a while. So if you’re able please share yours in the comments but if you’re not able and you have a particularly awesome poster, painting etc. – please send via email to [email protected] thanks!
Allow me to leave you with one of the melodies of the great one: Read More

From an email:
“Starting February 9, 2020, local artists will be descending into what was once an underground city street car station to launch a new Sunday arts market.
It’s worth noting that the Dupont Underground space is up for lease renewal. It’s at a pivotal moment where the city could decide to reclaim the space and sell to developers. The arts community is passionate about conserving the space as a sanctuary for local culture and for events like this new Sunday market.”
